Happy Halloween! Did you know Halloween is actually my favorite holiday?

The season filled with spooks, ghosts, and lots of delicious treats! (I think all the candy is probably the reason why it’s my favorite Holiday. Ha!) While the ghouls and goblins tempt us with chocolates and candies, here are some seasonal treats that are a little more friendly in terms of nutrition while satisfying that sweet tooth!

Start off your day with the Green Monster Smoothie which is full of kale, banana, mango, milk and PB2, giving you a dose of fruits and vegetables and protein to keep you feeling satisfied. To add a little Halloween flare, dip your cups in white chocolate along the rim, and while still wet, dip into some Halloween sprinkles. This can create a festive start to your day or midday sip, all the while, sneaking in a healthy treat.

Next up we have pumpkin hand pies! Allowing your creative energy to flow, you can customize each jack-o-lantern pie. It is sweet but not overly so, making it only a slightly guilty pleasure. Perfect for dessert on Halloween night!

Pair these options with soup or chili on Halloween and dinner is done! Enjoy!
